1) Tell us a little about yourself and what you do. How long have you worked in the industry?
I started at 19 years old as the marketing manager of König Wheels. It was a perfect time for me to be a part of that company. We had the best line of wheels that year, and the founder of König believed that I, based simply on my creative passion, could help bring the brand up to the awareness level that he wanted.
2) How did you get your start and what positions have you held at what companies as you progressed to your current position?
I have been on and off in the industry for about 10 years now. The reason I say that is because we launched NOS Energy Drink which now plays a major role in the automotive industry. In reality, it truly is a beverage company that had many learning experiences after we were acquired by Coca Cola where I remained for a few years to bring the brand to the top 5 energy drinks in the nation.
